This Week’s Music Selection from Heidi Dybing

Candle on the Water is from the 1977 Disney movie Pete’s Dragon.  It was one of our family’s favorite movies when our children were young.  (Everyone should have a devoted best friend who is an imaginary dragon!)  Helen Reddy sang the song praying her fiancée, who was lost at sea, would one day return.   
During these strange and frustrating times, it is nice to know we all have “candles on the water”. Here are the lyrics.

I’ll be your candle on the water
My love for you will always burn
I know you’re lost and drifting
But the clouds are lifting
Don’t give up, you have somewhere to turnI’ll be your candle on the water
‘Till every wave is warm and bright
My soul is there beside you
Let this candle guide you
Soon you’ll see a golden stream of lightA cold and friendless tide has found you
Don’t let the stormy darkness pull you down
I’ll paint a ray of hope around you
Circling in the air, lighted by a prayerI’ll be your candle on the water
This flame inside of me will grow
Keep holding on, you’ll make it
Here’s my hand, so take it
Look for me reaching out to show
As sure as rivers flow
I’ll never let you go
I’ll never let you go
I’ll never let you go
